If you haven't received emails from this site recently, please make sure your email address is current!

Please read the following notice from the creators of Class Creator:

"Class Creator will no longer show street addresses or telephone numbers in Profiles even if the Classmate has allowed those items to be shared with fellow Classmates.

From now on if a Classmate wants the street address or telephone number of a fellow Classmate he or she will need to contact the Classmate and ask for that information. These requests can be made through the Class Creator system of course -- the information will simply no longer be shown on the Profiles page.

The system will continue to collect street address and telephone numbers for all members but only Administrators will be able to see this information from now on.

Privacy laws have become extremely strict. Class Creator has been involved in two murder investigations and recently another identity theft case. We are taking this measure to ensure we are in compliance with current privacy laws and to protect your members from the potential unintended sharing of sensitive personal information.

Although arguably there are cases where it's convenient to share telephone number and street address with fellow Classmates, most Classmates don't opt for this option anyway. Unfortunately there's no way to know 100% for sure that a new registrant is a real classmate. Cases of hijacking and impersonation and so forth do happen.

If a member needs the street address or telephone number of a fellow member it's really not hard to simply ask. If the classmate wants to then offer up that information they can do so on their own volition.

I know there may be some Administrators here who will not be happy with the removal of this feature. I apologize if that's the case. Please understand for legal reasons and in accordance with our continual commitment to protection of privacy this decision is set in stone and we will not be able to accommodate exceptions."

We have added a new feature, "Photo Gallery", over on the left.  Everyone can create galleries of their own and add photos.  "Photo Gallery" contains photos from the Spring 2011 mini-reunion we just had as well as from the 2010 mini-reunion, the 30th reunion and the 20th reunion.  It also contains photos that classmates put on their profiles from the different reunions.  Enjoy!

If you haven't done so, check out the Sports section over on the left.  Lewis Rowland graciously shared video of Coach Henderson's induction into the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame recently.  He also added lots of stuff from the football state championship Western won, our junior year.  There's also a video of the game!

Britts Nicholson, a WGHS graduate from around 1974 is putting together a directory of former WGHS graduates.  They are putting together a combined reunion for 5 classes from the '70's and I think it grew out of that.  He asked me to send him our information (names, addresses, emails, phone numbers) for all our classmates.  I told him I would not provide this information to him, but would instead, forward his contact information to you so that you can decide whether or not to reply.  He has over 2000 classmates in his database and regularly sends it out to everyone who responds.   If you are interested in being included in his database, you can contact him at  As I've posted on here before, I will not forward any information you provide on this website to anyone for any purpose. 

Welcome to the Western Guilford High School Class Of 1979 web site. We can use this site to communicate with classmates.

Please go to the "Classmates Profile" page and find your name.  Click and then enter your updated information.  Forgive me if I've entered your first names wrong or if you go by something else.  You can correct it here or let me know and I'll correct it.

In order to receive emails from classmates and this site, be sure to whitelist the email address, " (that's a .net, not a .com)"  What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address

We also need your help finding other classmates, so if you have email addresses for anyone, you can use this site to get in touch with them.
